I want to develop python apps with aptana, I really love this editor.

Is possible to develop python apps with quickly + aptana or only quickly + gedit?

Quickly respects the $EDITOR variable, so if you set your editor to be Aptana then quickly edit will just fire that up for you.

There is also an environment variable just for this:

export QUICKLY_EDITOR=aptana

Then do quickly edit & to fire up your editor and keep the command line open for your next steps.

You can add QUICKLY_EDITOR to your ~/.bashrc file if you want to keep it this way.
